Atticus Circle


I thought you might want to know about this. I'm proud to work for the legal team that filed this lawsuit. Thanks for all you do for our shared cause. "The Religious Exemption Accountability Project (REAP) today filed a class action lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Education on behalf of 33 plaintiffs from 25 evangelical & LDS colleges in 18 states. The complaint, filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon, seeks to nullify the religious exemption to Title IX that allows widespread discrimination against LGBTQ students at faith-based colleges and universities across the nation. The plaintiffs include a mix of current students (some of whom are using a pseudonym for their safety), recently expelled students, and recent alumni who suffered conversion therapy and other discipline from their colleges for being LGBTQ.

Stand Up Straight For Equal Rights Atticus Circle is a national organization primarily funded and run by straight people dedicated to education and advocacy for the elimination of discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity/expression.

The organization is named for the character Atticus in Harper Lee's novel To Kill a Mockingbird, who stood up for the rights of others. Started in 2005 with just two members, Atticus Circle now has more than 6,000 supporters from across the nation and across the globe, and is active in the LGBT movement, having partnered on prior campaigns with Equality Texas, Human Rights Campaign, Service members Legal Defense Network, and Soulforce.

General information

Stand up and be counted It is time for us to stand up and stand with our gay and le***an friends who are being systematically denied the most basic rights and recognition – the very things we, in the heterosexual world, take for granted day after day. It is time for all children, regardless of their parents’ sexual orientation, to share the same rights and protections. And it is time for our country to acknowledge that the right to love a partner, be a parent and build a family is a fundamental, equal right for each and every one of us. Today we need your help to win this “civil rights battle rooted in love." We need you to add your voice to the growing number of our friends who say, “This just isn’t right." We invite you to come into the Atticus Circle and stand with others who say, “I’m ready. What can I do?" Along with liking us on Facebook, WE NEED YOU TO GO TO OUR WEBSITE AND SIGN UP AS AN OFFICIAL SUPPORTER OF THIS MOVEMENT at There is no cost to join as a supporter
